Obama's Anti Gun Agenda Urgent Notice

Yeah, things are getting tight. I think alot of people are just starting to come to the realization of just how bad things are. I'm happy to say gas was at $1.95 last night though. That helps.

That's what treasuries are going for. Bonds depend more on what they are in and how solid they are, many are going for upwards of 6% now but the ones I bought are backed up at the full dollar amount of 100 cents on the dollar by the govt. also tax free income being munis, except state tax. I don't agree with a lot of tax policy but I've benefited from it.

I read today that we would need ten more months of job loss comparable to last months to reach the worst shedding of jobs since the great depression (57-58) if I'm remembering right.

I live in a blue collar town, people here work, I'm concerned for my neighbors. I might try to redirect a lot of the effort I put into the campaign to some sort of do good effort. In my town I could see very high unemployment and forclosure.

The only problem is that as we saw in New Orleans, when things fall apart lots of people think they don't need to stockpile cash or food -- with a gun they can have yours. However, unlike the Democratic reaction, I don't think the answer is to disarm the law abiding and make them vulnerable to the lawless.

Buy stock in GM -- the Democrats owe the UAW big time and are going to pay them off if they can hang on a couple more months.

Civet -- I live in a blue collar town too. I'm already seeing alot of bad things. Not good. I'm also seeing alot of pulling together and good support if nothing but laughter. That's the one good thing coming out of this I guess.

Expat - Do you really think they'll bail them out by Jan? I don't think they're going to suppt. it.

I think the bailout is going to happen -- the big question is when. Given the billions being spent without any accountability right now, they're not going to let the auto industry go under. I think all you're seeing right now is a little squeezing by the Repubs to see what the Big 3 is willing to give up/change for the help. However, I think any deal that would happen after January would make it even worse by further rewarding the UAW.

I think I answered the question what guns do I own earlier.

Actually you didn't, but that's O.K. My point is we are all brother gun owners here even if we disagree on many issues. I don't think despite our debates and disagrements on the issues anyone here really wants to lose our second amendment rights. We simply disagree on to what degree they are threatened. I own several of what could be termed assault weapons but that doesn't make me unstable or on the verge of homicide and I frankly resent the implication. The fact you intend to re-direct your efforts into helping your neighbors is admirable and kindly bi-partisan. No one wants to see those we care about hurt. I think despite our differences you are basically well meaning. Just misdirected.

Actually I did.

Semi auto converted carbines just don't seem very important to me. I tend to value all life and hearing you condone murder and torture does nothing to endear you to me. Doesn't reasure me that you are a responsible gun owner either.

Troll alert!

Just what the heck is a "semi auto converted carbine?" Never in a lifetime of firearms use and associations with firearms enthusiasts have I heard of anything that can convert a rifle from bolt/lever/pump to semi auto, nor have I ever heard this term used. I can see calling an AR-15 a semi auto. I can see calling it a carbine. But I honestly don't know what you mean by "converted."

I'm starting to wonder just how much you know about firearms. Think This is the kind of thing I'd expect to hear from a troll pretending to be someone he's not.
